Choosing the shape of your nails is a key step that can visually highlight the beauty of your hands. From square to almond-shaped, the variety of shapes provides room for creativity. The leading technologist of the 4hands and Nails UP salon chain delicately suggests different types of nail shapes.

Types of nail shapes:

  • Natural shapes: Square, oval, soft square, almond.
  • Modeled forms: Stiletto, ballerina.
  • How to choose a shape: The choice of shape depends on the length of the nails and anatomical features. Oval and soft square are considered popular and universal, emphasizing naturalness.

Universal forms:

  • Oval: Natural and harmonious, suitable for almost all types of nails.
  • Soft Square: Enhances natural shape and is versatile.
  • Almond: Visually lengthens and thins the fingers.
  • Square: Ideal for thin and long fingers.
  • Oval: Corrects wide nail plates.
